B. (i) and (ii)
Because besides this, low levels of technology, lack of irrigation facilities and negligible use of fertilisers, all added up to aggravate the plight of the farmers and contributed to the dismal level of agricultural productivity.

Because at colonial regime the jamindari system was there and that cause they only focus that they collect all the taxes from the tiller and submit to the British government and no investment made in this area and that cause the mostly irrigation facilities are dependent upon monsoon and river lake or ponds and that cause lack of irrigation facilities and low level of technology due at that education system is not so and economy is not integrated with world economy and but some of country like Sri Lanka and Persia and imposing more tarrif and taxes on good and services .
